BitLocker on SSD drives with TRIM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello:

    Is there an official Microsoft recommendation regarding BitLocker on SSD drives?  Have a link for this please?

    Specifically, will use of BitLocker on an SSD wear down the drive faster (with or without TRIM) than not using BitLocker?  Does the use of BitLocker defeat the benefits of TRIM for SSD endurance?

    Any other issues or concerns with encrypting an SSD with BitLocker that are different from using BitLocker on spinning-platter drives?

    Thank You!!!
